Hello lovelies welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I hope you don’t mind something a bit different from me today. It’s come to that time of year when I make my Christmas Cake, and I thought that I would share my recipe with you all. My recipe is adapted from a Delia Smith recipe book that my Mum used every Christmas while she was still able to make gorgeous Christmas food. I’m dedicating this post in her memory.


This recipe is for an 8 inch (20cm) round cake or a 7 inch (18cm) square cake. Firstly I line my cake tin with 2 layers of greaseproof paper so that it’s all ready to take the mixture once prepared.


800g Dried Mixed Fruit

50g Glace Cherries rinsed, dried and chopped

5 Tablespoons of Brandy or Whiskey

225g Plain Flour

1/4 (quarter) teaspoon grated Nutmeg

1/2 (half) teaspoon Ground Mixed Spice
